This Engineering & Construction project is divided into 3 independent phases of 3 MW each and 1 phase of 4 MW. At the same time, we were tasked with connecting the site to the IBERDROLA electricity supplier’s source substations. This includes the installation of 4 high-voltage (20kV) lines in urban areas (including motorway crossings) over a length of several kilometres, which will eventually supply 13 MW IT to the DATA 4 data centre.
The first tranche of 3 MW IT has just been delivered, and the first two high-voltage lines (5 MW) will be commissioned at the end of 2020.
The project has been designed to be as energy-efficient as possible, taking into account local climate data, the level of redundancy required by the customer (TIER III), and operating constraints.
To successfully complete this refurbishment project, our teams had to innovate and meet a number of technical requirements. In particular, part of the existing building had to be reused (the façade was retained). Cap Ingelec is fully conversant with all the issues involved in turnkey projects (definition of requirements, technical definition, implementation, commissioning, etc.).
We integrated and carried out the entire design using BIM (Building Information Modeling) right from the design phase. The BMS (Building Management System) (customer interface software and technical cabinets) were also designed in our workshops, by our teams.
We bring all the technical skills needed to build a datacentre with a performance requirement that has won over the biggest international data processing companies. Our turnkey offer guarantees our customers a coherent project, as well as control over deadlines, costs, quality and energy consumption.
